Shared ILS Update 2012 March 2Alliance Colleagues,
I am pleased to let you know that we have received a very strong response to the written portion of the RFP. By our Feb 29 deadline we received proposals from:
The Shared ILS Team has just started analyzing these responses but early signs are good; these are clearly very substantial bids. The Team will be score bids according to the formal criteria outlined in the RFP and determine who will be invited to provide product demos (remember those online demos will be scheduled for the week of April 2-6). Next week we'll make full bids available to Council and Shared ILS working groups and start preparing bid summaries that will be available to all staff at member libraries.
Stay tuned! Remember ... you can always keep track of the Shared ILS project via the RFP Web page, which includes links to an FAQ and Calendar.
